WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY
We all face times when life is really hard. We work together to understand what is causing you discomfort and distress. These experiences in the present often reflect patterns from the past. Our bodies, emotions and behaviour are inter-related. Together we will explore this relatedness so that you can resolve and move on from what is no longer serving you. I offer a safe, confidential space as the basis for learning self-awareness that results in change.
WHAT DO I OFFER?
Common issues I work with include: depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, eating disorders, low self-esteem, trauma, bereavement, bullying, stress, sexual dysfunction, fears and phobias. I also work with issues relating to loss of meaning and identity during life stage transitions. I take an anti-discriminatory LGBTQ+ affirmative stance, and I am open to difference in all its forms.
I am a qualified psychological therapist with the BACP. I am completing additional training as a HCPC Counselling Psychologist and UKCP Integrative Psychotherapist. I am a member of the British Psychological Society. For the past 10 years I have worked for the NHS, in community mental health teams and more recently as a psychological therapist. I have worked as an honorary psychotherapist for the NHS, for St Joseph’s Hospice, Hackney and in the voluntary sector in Brighton and Hove.
I hold full professional indemnity insurance.
I am working towards completion of a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University.
